Perry Haas

EDUCATION: 2011 BFA Ceramics, Utah Sate University, Logan, UT 2007 Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, Jingdezhen, China International Student Exchange 2005 Waubonsee Community Collage, Sugar Grove, IL Artist Statement: "I approach making with a childlike spirit of experimentation and exploration. My work stems from a love of the wood fired ceramic surface, particularly how it evokes many beautiful natural phenomena. Like imaging the way wind gathers and deposits leaves on a landscape according to changes in topography, I anticipate the manner in which ash will collect differently on the convex and concave surfaces of my gestural forms. these functional pots are developed as a place for this surface to exist and to be enjoyed as a part of our daily life."
